My Locale Europe
About Me I started as an alpine climber, I did most of my climbing in the European Alps and some in New Zealand and recently some ice climbing in New Hampshire during holidays. I started backpacking while in New Zealand and backpacked exstensively in Europe, Patagonia and Nepal and in the US (VT and NH). I started as a lightweight backpacker for my Patagonia trip in 2002 and progressed from there to a more ultralight style. My favorite backpacking style is multi day trips in an alpine environment.

Re: Merino Wool Hoodies
I was under the impression that the Smartwool Shadow Hoody was quite succesful, apparently not. Too bad. Ibex could be convinced as they are not such a big company....

Not exactly known for (ultra) lightweight gear this one has won it's place in my lightweight kit list. It's a stretch windproof, water resistant pull over which is rather tight fitting. It weighs jus...
